Exit restrictions: There is currently an exit restriction in Austria (November 17 to probably November 26, 2020). You can only leave the house or apartment for the following reasons:
- Necessary basic needs of daily life
- Help / care for other people
- Exercise in the fresh air
The social contacts should be reduced as much as possible. The recommendation is: don't meet anyone. The time should be spent with the people who live in the same household. Individuals living alone may choose one person as their personal contact during the lockdown. Family gatherings are also prohibited. If e.g. individual relatives need support, a meeting is of course allowed. Birthday parties, anniversary celebrations and other celebrations are prohibited.
In public places, everyone who does not live in their own household must be kept 1 meter away. When meeting in closed public spaces, keep a distance of 1 meter and wear mouth and nose protection.
The shops are closed. As in spring, the exceptions are the shops that cover daily needs. Services such as e.g. hairdressers, beauticians, tattooists or masseurs have to close. The following shops & service providers are therefore open:
